Rating (out of five stars):
Goodreads blurb: With McLemore's signature lush prose, Dark and Deepest Red pairs the forbidding magic of a fairy tale with a modern story of passion and betrayal.
I liked the way it blended past and present, but I would have been happy just to read about the past, honestly. That's where the story really blossomed. I wouldn't mind a sequel about Lala and Alifair to see what happened to them after the book ended.
McLemore's writing was lush and gorgeous and it just flowed so well. I can't say enough good things about how well written it is. I'm a huge fan of dark fairy tale retellings, and this one definitely hits the mark.
